Why Choose Natural Alternative® Ice Melt?
Traditional ice melter products, such as rock salt, can be very damaging to soil, waterways and plants. Many are also highly corrosive to metals and lose their melting effectiveness at only 15°F. Other common ice melters can cause severe skin burns or rashes to people and pets and can be slippery when wet.
Natural Alternative® Ice Melt does not contain high concentrations of salt, has very low corrosive activity and is safer for you and the environment. Unlike calcium chloride, Natural Alternative® Ice Melt does not get slippery when wet; therefore, reducing potential injuries from falls. So whether it is 32°F or -16°F, Natural Alternative® Ice Melt outperforms traditional ice melter products in numerous ways.
How Fast and How Long Will It Work?
It is always best to apply Natural Alternative® Ice Melt prior to snow and ice. However, as soon as it comes in contact with moisture, the product begins to form a brine (a mixture of Natural Alternative® Ice Melt and water), which acts quickly to melt ice and snow. The brine lowers the freezing point of the ground and effectively minimizes ice and snow accumulations.
Natural Alternative® Ice Melt also lasts longer than most competitive ice melter products—both in use and in storage.
